"Make no little plans; they have no magic to stir men’s blood . . . Make big plans, aim high in hope and work." – Daniel Burnham, Architect

I have had people ask me Maria, what is a good book to read. My first response is several. Then I say ok lets look at one or two, each month.

I am always glad to hear when people want ideas on what to read, because sadly, most people once they graduate, never pick up a non-fiction book again. However, the successful people in the world never stop reading and become life long learners.

Remember that knowledge is something that can't be taken away from you. Sometimes jobs or other circumstance can, but not what you have acquired through learning.

The main areas that I will be recommending are in Communication, Self-Growth & Quantum Physics / Neuroscience

This month I recommend:

For Communication:

Nonviolent Communication: A Language of Life: Create Your Life, Your Relationships, and Your World in Harmony with Your Values- by Marshall Rosenberg

This is a book that I immersed myself in and took several training course with and some with Marshall Rosenberg, of which I completely enjoyed.

Imagine interacting with others in a way that allows everyone's needs to be equally valued. Imagine creating organizations and life-serving systems responsive to our needs and the needs of our environment

It teaches us how to move away from demanding good and bad, right and wrong into a more heart centre of respect and requests.

In 1961 Dr. Rosenberg received his Ph.D. in clinical psychology from the University of Wisconsin and in 1966 was awarded diplomat status in clinical psychology from the American Board of Examiners in Professional Psychology.

Nonviolent Communication training evolved from Dr. Rosenberg’s quest to find a way of rapidly disseminating much needed peacemaking skills.

Dr. Rosenberg provides Nonviolent Communication in numerous countries. He works with such groups as educators, managers, health care providers, lawyers, military officers, prisoners, police and prison officials, clergy, government officials, and individuals. He is also active in war-torn areas and economically disadvantaged countries, offering Nonviolent Communication training to promote reconciliation and peaceful resolution of differences. Israel, Palestine, Ireland, Russia, Rwanda, Burundi, Nigeria, Serbia, and Croatia are examples of countries where Nonviolent Communication is being utilized by teams of peace activists.

For Self Growth
Many classics have been out there, some for hundreds of years. Repeatedly, I have read how the successful people in this world, read and implemented these works.

One of these is The Science of Getting Rich -- by Wallace D. Wattles
Both Brian Tracy and Rebecca Fine, teach the works of this amazing person.
This book is from 1910 and asks, what if everything you've ever believed about wealth and making money is dead wrong? It probably IS -- just look at your results!

Rebecca so believes in his work that she offers a free e-version of the book . As well she has a course, which I was most fortunate to take.

Each section has audio training and instructions and then a worksheet to go through.
The amazing part about her course is that Rebecca wants this information to reach as many people as possible, so she has created a set your own tuition for anyone who is struggling financially.
Check out Rebecca's site

or grab a copy at Amazon.

"Ninety-nine percent of failures come from people who have the habit of making excuses."

– George Washington Carver, Botanist
